94-letni Attenborough znalazł ząb podczas rodzinnych wakacji na Malcie pod koniec lat 60. Attenborough przybył do pałacu na prywatny seans swojego filmu dokumentalnego z księciem Williamem.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share new photographs of their family with @DavidAttenborough. The photographs were taken earlier this week in the gardens of Kensington Palace, after The Duke and Sir David attended an outdoor screening of Sir David’s upcoming feature film 🎞️ ‘David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet’. With a shared passion for protecting the natural world, they continue to support one another in their missions to tackle some of the biggest environmental challenges our planet faces. This includes working together on The @EarthshotPrize 🌍 the most prestigious global environment prize in history – further details of which will be shared in the coming weeks. When they met, Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark 🦷 the scientific name of which is carcharocles megalodon (‘big tooth’). Sir David found the tooth on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s, embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone which was laid down during the Miocene period some 23 million years ago. Carcharocles is believed to have grown to 15 metres in length, which is about twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark alive today.

Film „David Attenborough: Życie na naszej planecie” jest osobistą refleksją nad karierą przyrodnika i zmianami, jakie zaszły w świecie przyrody.

Attenborough tworzy filmy dokumentalne o przyrodzie od lat pięćdziesiątych i podkreślił globalne zagrożenie, jakie stanowią odpady z tworzyw sztucznych, w swoim serialu „Blue Planet II” z 2017 roku.
